Verizon has ratched up the speed of their FiOS internet service. Today the company has introduced a 150Mb/sec speed plan for their customers at a premium price of $200 a month.
Of course this is the download speed; the upload on this plan is 35MB/sec which is nothing new for FiOS customers as this speed is offered on a lower tier. The 150 download speed is now the fastest currently available from any major Internet provider in the U.S.; 50 times faster than average DSL service. The service is expected to be offered to businesses as well by the end of the year at a higher rate.
